I could be wrong about this but the American establishment, particularly the media and politicians, try to create these heroes of democracy from other countries, and then sell to them to the American public. One time, Americans I met on my travels, upon hearing I am from the Czech Republic, would always start talking about Václav Havel. It happened to me multiple times. The Americans could not pronounce Havel’s name properly, and called him Vaklav.
This country has a large population of people, who don’t have a good opinion of Havel, and the people are often former dissidents. I personally believe Havel was a puppet of the secret services. Controlled opposition. One of the brothers Mašín said Havel was a “cretin pimped by the STB.” So these American’s were surprised I don’t fawn over Havel. Maybe these Muricans read a report in time like the one below.
Putin does not fear Navalny. Navalny has limited legitimacy even among the pro-Western crowd, many of whom are glad he is in jail. But Navalny is a petty criminal, who became a millionaire by creaming the system. It is said he grafted money from SPS, that was a party back then, not very successful. I guess you can’t do a campaign when you steal all the money and spend it on designer shit for your daughter and holidays in the Maldives.
Navalny got burned by fucking with YvesRocher. His faked poisoning was created to give him a chance to escape justice. Navalny is a crook, that’s all he is. Russians may be glad they are at loggerheads with America, so they wouldn’t be meeting many American telling them about Alexey Navalny. The Time is trash, close it.
